David D. Sedillo Obituary
David D. Sedillo, age 62, died on Thursday, Dec. 24, 2009. Though he had been diagnosed with diabetes twenty-two years earlier, he peacefully passed away of natural causes in his Hobbs, N.M. home.
Born Nov. 20, 1947, in Carrizozo, he grew up in Alamogordo, worked in Tularosa and Albuquerque, and found a life for himself in Hobbs. Dave started out in Alamogordo with what will become an undeniable work ethic. As a young man, in the 60's, he managed Circle K and did data processing for Landair of Holloman Air Force Base. In the 1970s he went on to own and operate Dave's Chevron in Tularosa and later worked with American National Insurance. In 1979 he found himself working with Albertson's Foods in Albuquerque and later Hobbs where he decided to settle in for nearly 30 years. Throughout these many years he referred to the drive back over the mountains into Alamogordo as "coming home." This soft-spoken, yet direct man was coming home to spend time with his family where he was happiest just sharing a huge meal and a nice cup of coffee.
David was survived by his longtime companion Rosemary Rodriguez of Hobbs; daughter Connie and her husband Mark Perusse of Alamogordo; sons David and his wife, Jennifer Sedillo, of Las Vegas, Nev., and Jason and wife, Lorinda Sedillo, of Ashland, Mo.; his loving extended family, Becky Gallegos and her daughters Valarie Sato and Amber Thady of Alamogordo; as well as grandchildren; Kristin and Jeffery O'Dell, Christopher, Joshua, Jacob, Mason and Grace Sedillo and Madison and Jamison Sedillo.
He was also survived by nine of 12 siblings, Raymond Sedillo, Gloria Sedillo-Martinez, Tony Sedillo and his wife Sandie, Lillian and her husband Mel Myers, Rosemarie and her husband Michael Langefeld, Henry Sedillo and his wife Brandi, Judy and her husband Rick Lee, Michael Sedillo and his wife Anita, Robert Sedillo and his wife Liz and Renate Rockwell, the family's special friend.
He was preceded in death by parents Lorenzo and Rafela (Romero) Sedillo, and three siblings Eddie Sedillo, Geneva Lyons, and Fred Sedillo.
Services to celebrate the life of David D. Sedillo will take place with the Rosary being recited at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 30, 2009, in the Alamogordo Funeral Home Chapel.
Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 31, 2009, at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church with the Father Bryant Hausfeld, celebrant.
The family will greet friends from 5 until 7 p.m. at Alamogordo Funeral Home.
The Sedillo family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the funeral services.
